Fall high school sports postseason events will continue Friday and Saturday with district competitions in swimming and diving as well as cross country.
Most Brevard County schools will compete in district meets on Friday at Indian River State College in Ft. Pierce: Class 2A schools at 9 a.m. and 1A schools 2 p.m. District meets for 3A schools will be next week.
Because the top two teams from each district qualify for the regional playoffs, all district finalists are bound for the tournament that begins next week.
